    Its good but vacation remain a huge challenge because your R&R is never defined.salary and pay is ok and in time.

    Training is good and you can gather the best skills ever on earth

    Advice to Management

    Consider and mind about families left behind because employees need time to rest and atleast spend some time with families back home.Long time before R&R keeps torturing employees especially married couples,please be fair and humane.

    I worked at AMK9 as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Payroll is usually on-time
    Vacations are paid, which means you don't have to pre-plan your finances to account for it

    Cons

    They have a willingness to force employees to work obscene amounts of hours without compensating them for the extra work.
    The living conditions (although not entirely AMK9's fault) are spotty at best.
    Pay is lower than average the average for most companies
